you know, so many people are eligible, aren't even on it. people deserve this bridge over troubled waters. no one wants to be on snap or food stamps. i'm a former public assistance recipient. i was on food stamps way back in the day in the '70s. i never could have raised my children as a single mom and gotten out of school, had it not been for that helping hand that i needed at that very difficult period of time. that's the way most people are. who are on snap benefits. >> bill: you know, something that you and i have struggled with and i guess we'll never figure out is why of all the targets, you know, that republicans could choose, to pick on, right they always choose the poorest of the poor. >> the poor, the seniors, the most vulnerable. it is a terrible moment in our country's history. where survival of the fittest. go for what you know. you know, only the strong survive. >> bill: you're fighting the good fight congresswoman. we're proud of you.
